Due to the costly nature of a repipe, there are a lot of variables that we consider before recommending a complete repipe of a house or building. We look at the type of pipe that was used, the workmanship, how old the pipe is, signs of leaks and the number of previous pipe repairs.
When the domestic (potable) water system in your house is being repiped we start at the main supply and work our way to the furthest fixture in the home. We replace all the pipe that is in the walls, ceilings, crawl spaces, wherever the pipes run. We replace all the necessary fittings and valves up to your existing showers/tubs, toilets and faucets.
If we need to open walls or ceilings to replace your pipe, we will have one of our sub-contractors come in to patch any openings we needed to make to complete the job. Your walls and ceilings will look just as they did prior to the repipe.
Upon completion of the repipe everything will be pressure tested to ensure there are no issues before closing any openings that we made. We will then explain your new system, show you where the shut-offs are and any changes that were made in its operation.
